The Olympic Events of July 29

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

" Life is too short for drama or petty things,
 so laugh hard, love truly and forgive quickly."
__._,_.___




From now until the Opening Ceremony and Parade of Athletes on July 27,  except on Wordless Wednesdays and Funny Fridays, we will be featuring a days events, picked at random, and give you a few examples to inspire you.

Now as you know I, Mona, am hosting the Tongue Curling/Raspberry Event. Since Weenie and I aren't gonna compete in our own events, Mommy wants to show you our tongue pictures, that were taken at the Doxie Play date on Saturday, cause she says we are just to darn cute.
